Consensus line: Panthers by 1 Prediction: Both teams are coming off huge road wins, enabling them to keep pace with the divisionleading New Orleans Saints in the ultra-competitive NFC South. Six of the Falcons’ remaining nine games are against divisional foes, including their final four, two against the Saints. The Panthers play five of their final eight games at home after posting a stellar 4-1 road record during the first eight weeks. The Falcons, arguably, have the Panthers right where they want them — at Bank of America Stadium, where Carolina is 1-2. With the Saints favored to beat cellar-dwelling Tampa Bay at home, this game looms large for both teams.
